Frequently asked questions
Do your classes only focus on one sport?
No, we at the kids coach focus on coaching your child fundamental movements and a variety of sports such as soccer, basketball and our national sports Gaelic football and hurling which hold a very important place in our culture in Ireland. We emphasise the idea of participating in many sports as it is proven that specializing in only one sport as a child can lead to chronic injuries in the future. Another factor to consider is the likelihood of boredom as a result of sticking to the one sport.
